Drug Crimes

St. Louis Drug Crime Attorney

Charged with a drug offense in St. Louis or the surrounding counties?

Activities involving illegal drugs and controlled substances, such as marijuana, crack, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamines, steroids, unauthorized prescription drugs, and more are violations of state and federal laws. These drugs crimes range from simple possession of marijuana to drug dealing activities, such as sales, distribution, importation, transportation, cultivation, manufacture, and trafficking. They also include possession or distribution of drug paraphernalia, such as pipes, bongs, and more as well as the possession and use of precursor chemicals used in the manufacture of such controlled substances as methamphetamines. Furthermore, it is illegal to engage in prescription fraud or the unauthorized procurement or distribution of medical drugs, such as Vicodin, Percocet, OxyContin, Xanax, and other painkillers or narcotics. If you are found to be involved with others in any type of drug activity, you may find yourself facing conspiracy charges as well.

  • Can I represent myself?
    Yes. Although the right is not unlimited, in every criminal prosecution, the accused must be permitted to act as his or her own attorney. However, the better question is whether you should represent yourself. To that question, the answer is undeniably no.

  • What if I am guilty?

    Although your thoughts on guilt or innocence of the charges against you are important, it is only one factor that should be considered in how to dispose of the criminal case.

    The Whiteley Law Firm is committed to ensuring that those charged with criminal offenses receive a result that is in their best interest. In doing so, we always ensure that the conduct of the police has been proper and the prosecution can meet their burden of proof.

  • Will my case be dismissed if the police did not read me my Miranda rights?

    The continued popularity and proliferation of crime drama television shows perpetuates the idea that the police must advise the suspect of his or her Miranda rights immediately upon being arrested. This television show concept, however, is a myth. The police are under no obligation to inform someone of their constitutional rights once placed in custody.

    The Miranda warnings – generally, the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney – take their name from the 1966 U.S. Supreme Court decision of the same name, Miranda v. Arizona. The landmark decision requires law enforcement officials to inform individuals in custody of their rights prior to any questioning. In other words, with some limited exceptions, Miranda warnings are only required when the police interrogate someone while they are in custody.

    Given these two requirements, the question whether a case will be dismissed can become a complex question. Suffice it to say, while complete dismissal of the case is not impossible, the more likely result from a Miranda violation would be suppression of the illegally obtained evidence.
